Description

Shake up your allium style with this new kid on the block, Allium 'Cherry', exclusively available at Farmer Gracy! Chunky dome-shaped flowerheads, tightly packed with decadent morello cherry-coloured blooms, introduce a contrasting deeper tone to your allium panoply. Kicking into action in late spring, these tall and sturdy alliums with big blooms are just the kind of flower power that's needed to keep your colour schemes flowing seamlessly into summer!

If you’re hoping to help the bees, then look no further then Allium 'Cherry'. These mighty blooms are nectar heaven for pollinators—bees will love to snack their way across the entire flowerhead. When it comes to styling these impressive deep red alliums in the garden, however you decide to place them they will look good. You can plant them in informal swathes through mixed borders, line them up in neat rows in contemporary gardens, or make a big show of them by planting a few dense groups.
